Fort William Scotland Recommendations?


Recommended Posts

My wife and I are going to Scotland at the end of the month.  Not a golf vacation but this is the 3rd time we've been, we love it, and I've never played golf there.  Want to try to squeeze in a round this time.  We are splitting our time in Fort William and Dunvegan.  Any recommendations? I would need to rent clubs as well.  Thanks in advance.

Hello!

Being a "local" lad (im Inverness so about 70miles from Fort William)

You have Fort William golf Club itself which is based in Fort William website as follow:

The Club Fort William Golf Club sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, amid breathtaking Highland scenery. The course is set in beautiful countryside with spectacular views. The cliffs of Ben Nevis hang...

I have not personally played here as i've only recently picked up the clubs again myself, but i've heard good things about the course and as long as you get a good day it'll be a cracking view!

Dunvegan is almost the wrong end of Skye for Isle Of Sky Golf Club:

The Club Nestled at the foot of the Red Cuillins, with stunning views of the Old man of Storr and across to Raasay, The Isle of Skye Golf Club is an unexpected gem amidst Skye’s dramatic landscape. In the early days of...

My friend is a member here as he works at one of the local hotel's restaurant hes only been playing around a year and says its challenging for all levels but does have some rewarding holes, much like Fort William as long as its a good day the views will be rewarding! We are planning a weekend playing here in July so if your trips after this ill let you know how i get on!

    • Good to hear.  My parents got theirs yesterday.  It seems like it really reduces stress to get that done. I’m young and healthy so I’m not chomping at the bit.  
    • Got our shots tonight. Moderna vaccine and already scheduled for the follow up shot. Man, but they had things dialed in. Very slick operation and all went well. Many thanks to the folks around the country working these clinics! Except... major side effect! When I went in I had a full head of dark brown hair and when I got home and looked in the mirror imagine my surprise when I saw that what was left of my hair was grey!  Ha! Seriously, no side effects from this shot for me - not even a sore arm!
    • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011) A strange movie. Kind of hard to follow along too. Overall, a good dark thriller. I give it a tap in par. 
    • This is what I do as well. When I focus just on the ball, or a dimple on the ball, or a blade of grass, my takeaway gets funky, or more so than usual, and my swing gets all out of sync. 
    • I rarely ever play an extra ball.  if I am on top of the group in front of me and it is open behind me I may go back and replay the hole but that is rare. My preference is to get a true score. The course is to play, the range is for practice.
